How to Install Ruby with rbenv on Ubuntu 16.04

Wed, 13 Dec 2017 13:48:33 +0000

Each time I have to install Ruby + rbenv + bundler manually on a Ubuntu machine I somehow mess it up and have to google for a tutorial, then try some until I find a working one. This one here did work perfectly yesterday, when it was time to do it once again:

Send tabs/URLs between desktop and iOS device

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 14:26:01 +0000

Yay, with Firefox iOS it is finally possible to send tabs and URLs between desktop and iOS devices, in both directions. iOS to Desktop From Firefox for iOS to desktop computer, the functionality has its own button in the „tab options menu“ and a great explanation in the knowledge base. What isn’t mentioned there is […]

Disable Windows Defender real time protection with a Desktop Shortcut

Thu, 05 Oct 2017 16:31:51 +0000

I love how Microsoft made third party anti virus protection obsolete with Defender – it just works. Unfortunately sometimes I need to disable (and later enable again) it’s real time protection feature because it slows down processes I know are secure – for example Gradle builds in Android Studio. It normally takes 7 clicks to […]

Website Performance, Code, Images and SEO Testing Tools

Fri, 29 Sep 2017 11:48:43 +0000

There are loads of web site and page analyzer tools out there that look at them under performance, quality, image compression, code or SEO aspects. Many are just (thinly veiled) lead generation tools that don’t really tell the true story, but some are actually useful. As I need them again and again, I collected them […]

Visualize `git reflog` in a GUI (and put it in context) with SmartGit

Thu, 28 Sep 2017 10:31:02 +0000

Recently I messed up an important git repository that I was working on. I had created some content in a specific file a few weeks ago. After multiple merges, commit squashing, git reset, rebases and other types of history rewrites  I noticed that this content was missing. Oh-oh, seems what everybody warns you about when […]

About StackOverflow

Fri, 22 Sep 2017 15:35:55 +0000

I tried to post a few questions on StackOverflow in the last days which at times was a very negative experience: I was downvoted, got negative comments and of course got my questions closed as „offtopic“. I am not the only one with that problem: Why do I write this down now? […]

How to commit and version changes in a git fork/branch but not merge them back

Thu, 21 Sep 2017 10:38:18 +0000

Recently I tried to figure out how to have both a production and staging environment of a Jekyll website hosted with Github Pages. This turned out to be not that simple, as both repositories (Github Pages can only host one branch per repository, so you need two – one organization repository and one personal for […]

Rewriting history in Git

Wed, 20 Sep 2017 20:00:45 +0000

Once again I was confused about rewriting history in Git: Why and how is "rebase" and "rewrite history" in git the same thing? I'm confused. A lot. — Jan Piotrowski (@Sujan) September 20, 2017 As I am not a git power user – I use a GUI, SourceTree of GitKraken – for the more complicated […]

Move (clone and close) Github issues to a different repository

Fri, 04 Aug 2017 10:45:09 +0000

If you have any projects on Github that span multiple repositories you know the pain when someone creates a valid issue, but uses the wrong repo to do so. Of course you could tell them to „Create another issue in the correct repo and gtfo“ but that a) wouldn’t be very nice and b) is […]

How to develop iOS 10.3.x apps in Xcode 8.2.x

Mon, 10 Jul 2017 17:44:13 +0000

If you work on an older version of Mac OS, for example because Apple decided your Macbook is to old to upgrade to a recent version, you might be stuck with Xcode 8.2.x to develop and test your iOS apps. Unfortunately this can lead to this nice error message if you made the mistake to […]

Overview of the API Concepts and Endpoints

Mon, 03 Jul 2017 16:24:07 +0000 offers a very comprehensive API with an amazing documentation. But thorough as it is – and the technical details like authentication, data formats, parameters etc. are really, really well covered – it can also feel a bit overwhelming when you jump in and want to get a first overview, or are only looking for […]

Google Spreadsheet: Output current date (statically)

Fri, 30 Jun 2017 12:03:31 +0000

Imagine you have a Google Spreadsheet with a „last active“ column where you e.g. log the date when you last worked on the line item. You don’t want to have to type the date every time you change something as a) typing is cumbersome and b) you don’t even know the current date anyway. Normally […]

(Visual) CMS for Jekyll

Thu, 22 Jun 2017 11:20:47 +0000

Jekyll is „a blog-aware, static site generator in Ruby“. It also is used by Github Pages, which means you can host simple static sites, managed via Git, for free with it. That’s great. Not that great (for me) is that you have to manage the content in the file system and manually handle Markdown files. […]

Mac OS X: Unabhängige Scroll-Richtung für Maus und Touchpad

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 11:28:34 +0000

Natural Scrolling ist toll auf Mac OS X. Allerdings nur mit dem Touchpad, nicht mit der angeschlossenen USB-Maus. Dummerweise sind die „Scroll Direction“-Einstellungen von Maus und Touchpad aneinander gekoppelt, so dass wenn die eine (de)aktiviert wird, die andere dies auch tut. Heute aber eine Lösung gefunden: Installiert, konfiguriert, Problem behoben.

Windows 10: WLAN/Netzwerk von „Öffentliches Netzwerk“ auf „Privates Netzwerk“ umstellen

Thu, 30 Mar 2017 12:20:12 +0000

Mit Windows 10 hat sich (mal wieder) geändert, wie man sein WLAN/Netzwerk von „öffentlich“ auf „privat“ umstellen kann. Das ist relevant weil die Windows Firewall zwischen diesen beiden Klassen von Verbindungen unterscheidet und manche Verbindung aus Versehen falsch kategorisiert werden kann. Also muss man es ändern. Nur wo? Die Einstellung findet sich nun in den […]
